Hotel Adler Cavalieri

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Florence Santa Maria novella train station is 2-3 mins walk from the hotel, most of the tours start from the station as they start early in the morning, its always prudent to stay next to the station. Rooms are not too big neither too small, prefect fit for two people. Breakfast spread is good when compared to other 4star hotels in Europe. City tax is 4.5 euro per person per night. There are a few good restaurants nearby and carrefour express (supermarket) as well.

Can hear the people next door talking, their phone ringing, moving chairs. Housekeeping carts parked along the wall outside the door, so feels like your in laundry area. Maids are so noisy talking, laughing, banging things. No water pressure or hot water in the shower. Room is cold as heater comes on automatically at certain times only. No dinner or lunch available. Positives: location No I would not stay here again

We had a beautiful room with a balcony. There was a jacuzzi bath and everything was very clean. The breakfast was also very good. The hotel is in walking distance of the train station and the tourist and shopping areas. It was our favorite hotel of our Italian vacation.

We enjoyed our stay at the Adler Cavalieri. There were 3 of in the room and it was comfortable. The staff kept everything very clean and comfortable. The location was close to the train station which we appreciated, but it was an easy walk to all the sights. There was plenty of food at breakfast, even for our gluten-free person. Everything tasted terrific too. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We stayed 3 nights here, and found nothing to complain about. The location is within walking distance of the downtown tourist attractions, the breakfast was good (with very attentive wait staff) and the room was good-sized. Also, we went up to the hotel bar 2 evenings, and enjoyed the casual seating and the free appetizers. The house wines were good, and several I our party enjoyed the Aperol Spritzers! We heard that some friends' rooms had smaller bathrooms, but ours was quite large - and our room opened onto a semi-private courtyard as well.

Pros: Friendly staff, easy to find, nice breakfast options, comfortable rooms, clean, updated bathrooms. We were on the first floor facing the street, and barely heard any noise. Cons: Not in the most appealing neighborhood. Very close to the train station, so great to use as a home base if you are doing day trips from Florence. 15-20 minute walk to the main Florence sights.

This was our first trip to Florence, the hotel is a 2 minute walk from the train station and 10-15 minute walk in to town, fantastic location. We received a warm welcome, all staff were friendly and extremely helpful; you can book trips, tickets for tourist attractions etc through reception. Our double room was a great size, however, the bathroom let it down, mouldy grouting and shower curtain which desperately needed replacing, hence our rating of 3.

Just around the corner from the train & bus station, and within easy walking distance of the centre. The style is authentic, the breakfast fabulous & the room quiet, perfectly comfortable, with fluffy towels, toiletries, & tea/coffee facilities. Lots of squishy sofa area's in the Hotel where you can chill, plus a small bar & seated areas outside in the courtyard. Head left when leaving the Hotel & there are a number of small, reasonably priced, roadside trattorias on the same street. Head further into the centre for more choice, but you will also pay more. We loved the restaurant above the Mercado Centrale (5 mins walk, back past the station) so much we went 3 times! Although we didn't take advantage of it, the Hotel also offered a packed lunch for €5 if you booked in advance.

We very much enjoyed this hotel during our four days in Florence. It is very close to the train station and the bus station (great for day trips to Siena or Pisa). They provided a very good breakfast buffet. I do miss their cappuccino. The staff were very pleasant and efficient and helped clarify the steps for doing trips to Siena and Pisa. We stored our luggage there after checkout, and when we came back later that day from Pisa, we were soaked from a rainstorm. They had sympathy and offered to let us change into dry clothes in the lobby bathrooms before heading to the train station. We will definitely stay here again during any future visit to Florence.

This hotel in the heart of Florence is charming. The bathroom is made from the marble that this rrgion is famous for. The rooms are serviceable but are quite small; there is not enough room to open two suitcases.
